Different Poincaré maps for same Equation

I've seen the Wolfram Poincaré example.

I'd like to modify this sample in order to have a list of Poincaré maps. In the example the event is captured only when Mod[t, 2 Pi] == 0. I want to create a map of angles (0, Pi/2, Pi, 3 Pi/2, 2Pi for example) and create the Poincaré for every angle, in order to create an animation showing the map for every angle.

Obviously I can create data for every angle, putting the the example inside a Table command and varying the angle, but it seems a waste of time, because I must perform NDSolve every time.

Instead it can be helpful to find a way to use NDSolve only once and save directly the list of data for all angles that I want.

I've tried to change Mod[t, 2 Pi] == 0 to Mod[t, 2 Pi] == 0 || Mod[t, Pi] == 0, because I wanted to create a unique list, check it's length and then rearraing data in some way in order to obtain the map list, but I obtain the following error

Part::partw: "Part 1 of {} does not exist.

And data is

{{{}}, {}}[[-1, 1]]

Why I obtain this error and how can I have different sections using NDSolve only once?

• I updated the answer to show many-events animation. – Vitaliy Kaurov Apr 21 '14 at 13:02

============== update - animation ==============

This animation has about 50 frames - meaning it's obtained from tracking 50 independent events during single run of numerical solver: Code is simply given by:

evs = Mod[t, 2 \[Pi]] == # & /@ (Range[0, 2 Pi - #, #] &@(2 Pi/50));

data = Block[{δ = 0.15, γ = 0.3}, Reap[NDSolve[{x''[t] + δ x'[t] - x[t] +
x[t]^3 == γ Cos[ t], x == 0, x' == 0,
WhenEvent[Evaluate@evs,
Sow[{x[t], x'[t]}, Round[100 Mod[t, 2 π]]]]}, {}, {t, 0,
200000}, MaxSteps -> ∞]]];

Export["test.gif",
Table[ListPlot[data[][[k]], PlotStyle -> PointSize,
PlotRange -> {1.8 {-1, 1}, 1.3 {-1, 1}}, AspectRatio -> 1,
Frame -> True, ImageSize -> 450], {k, 1, 50, 1}]
]

============== older - testing grounds ==============

Put independent events in List when you need a few of them. Then to separate while Sow/Reap - use tags in Sow - for example for 4 different events. I'll show all of them on a single plot to compare. Just use Manipulate or Animate or ListAnimate for your goal.

data = Block[{δ = 0.15, γ = 0.3},
Reap[NDSolve[{x''[t] + δ x'[t] - x[t] +
x[t]^3 == γ Cos[ t], x == 0, x' == 0,
WhenEvent[{Mod[t, 2 π] == 0, Mod[t, 2 π] == π/2,
Mod[t, 2 π] == π, Mod[t, 2 π] == (3 π)/2},
Sow[{x[t], x'[t]}, Round@Mod[t, 2 π]]]}, {}, {t, 0,
100000}, MaxSteps -> ∞]]];

• Nice plot! Looks like pastel. – chris Apr 19 '14 at 14:32
• @chris it's the new default color palette in Mathematica 10, available for free for the Raspberry Pi. See the documentation of PlotTheme. – shrx Apr 19 '14 at 23:34
• @VitaliyKaurov Dear Vitaliy, you seem to be very versed in these functionalities of Mathematica, whenever you have some time, could you help out a bit here: mathematica.stackexchange.com/questions/63484/… Thanks a lot in advance. – Phonon Oct 18 '14 at 14:02
